Elia Kazan

A Streetcar Named Desire

8.0
Now that`s one thing you`re bound to call a classic. Tennesee Williams is the author of the play of the same name. I really watched it only because it was a central theme in "All about my mother" but who cares about what I do and why? So, there`s Stella who`s quite happy with her husband Stanley Kowalski, despite him being a common person (but he`s Marlon Brando, so she has her reasons for that). But when her neurotic sister Blanche arrives, everything goes a bit bad. Blanche has a very bad relationship with Stanley, and he uses a whole lot of ugly moments from her past in order to show her where her place is. The ending is a very sad one, and a very appropriate one as well. The storyline is actually quite simple, but the film seemed to me being very powerful. I`m probably not such a fan of films made in the 1950s but this one truly was a very good film.

On the Waterfront

8.5
"On the Waterfront" ir klajš piemērs amerikāņu sapnim - šajā filmā gados itin jauns Marlons Brando ir vienkāršs puisis, kas strādā dokos un ir mazliet saistīts ar bandītisku grupējumu, kas kontrolē visus procesus ostā. Un kas to būtu domājis, ka divdesmit gadus vēlāk viņš būs uzkalpojies līdz Krusttēvam - tik autoritatīvam vīram, kuram pat šīs filmas centrālais negatīvais tēls - bandīts Džons Draudzīgais - varētu vien pienest ūdeni!

East of Eden

8.5
Kādam tēvam bija divi dēli: Kains un Ābels. Tā varētu sākties šīs filmas anotācija. Pamatā šim kinovēstījumam ir tāda paša nosaukuma Džona Steinbeka romāns, no kura gan filmā paņemta tikai viena sižeta līnija, kas būtībā ar vēsta par šiem diviem dēliem.
